Hi My daughter has 2 bottle of amoxicillin in the refrigerator. Never used but already mixed. The pink one. The expiration date in the bottle says January 2018. Will it still be good to use? The actual date mixed was July 18 2016

In my opinion it should be perfectly fine to take. I say this because I would personally feel comfortable taking it based on the info you provided.

Depending on storage conditions many prescriptions can reportedly last up to 40 years after the listed expiration date (with few exceptions such as tetracycline). Harvard University and the LA Times both have articles online recognizing this...

But since it's not even January 2018 yet I wouldn't even begin to question its efficacy (especially because it has been refrigerated)...

Does anyone else have thoughts on this?

I have liquid amoxicillin 400mg dated 10/19/2017. It has been refrigerated since the purchase date when my med was changed to another antibiotic. Is this still safe to take?
